A very happy Saturday to you!

We have a busy day ahead… Isabelle is ONE today! Can you even believe it?! It seems like just yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital to her over-the-moon big brothers. Here we are, one year later, and the three of them are little peas in a pod and she is just the sweetest little lady. We are having her party today here at home, so we are in full-on party prep mode! I can’t wait to show you all of the details next week :)

What do you have going on this weekend?!

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week, the most shared recipes, my Sunday dinner menu, and recipes I’ve bookmarked from other blogs. Enjoy!
